Chasidus Chabad is the preparation for Moshiach

In a general sense, yes, but the Rebbe Rashab famously said that "the ikkar inyan of yofutzu maynosecho chutza (Moshiach's promise that he would come after the Baal Shem Tov's teaching's were spread to the outside) began after Peterburg (i.e., after 19 Kislev)."

The Rebbe explains that davka Chassidus Chabad, which is a manner that permeates intellect, is the preparation for Moshiach, when,a s the Rambam paskens, "yasigu da'as Borom k'fi koach ho'odom," clearly referring to intellectual comprehension. Thus, all Jews should learn it and be taught it in order to be truly ready for Moshiach. See Likkutei Sichos vol. 30, the sicha of 19 Kislev, pp. 170-176, starting here.

Other Chassidus is ChaGaS, only Chabad is ChaBaD. Bias Moshiach is hisgalus hamoichin, Kesser Chochma Bina, and only learning Chabad Chassidus is a preparation for this. 'toame'ha chaim zachu'

Incidentally, "Chagas" Chassidim by and large have never heard of this strange label. Labeling us "Chabad" does not make everyone else "Chagas." Therefore, any logical train that runs on that assumption (like the above pithy comment) has derailed.

(To be clear: I have nothing against Noahidelaws comment.)

The Rebbe recognizes the term

אומרים אצל חסידים, שחג"ת'ניק קשה יותר לעשותו חסיד חב"ד מאשר עולם'שער

(Sicha, Yud Tes Kislev 5713)

Also:
Quote:
וכידוע105 שהבעש"ט מסר נפשו להעלים את עצמו מאדמו"ר הזקן [שהרי מצד שנותיו הי' אדמו"ר הזקן יכול לראות את הבעש"ט, כי, בעת הסתלקות הבעש"ט הי' אדמו"ר הזקן בן ט"ו שנה], כדי שיהי' שייך אל המגיד דוקא – שעי"ז נהי' אנו חב"ד'ניקעס ולא חג"ת'ניקעס. וכאמור, המעלה דחסידות חב"ד היא שגם המוחין חב"ד חדורים בענין המס"נ

Chai Elul 5713

Yes. It is a term used to label, the theory being that since we are Chabad, and they are not, then they must be Chagas. But, having labeled them with a term that they do not recognize (by and large), its k'dai to remember that our label doesn't summarize their metzius.

Just because you have attached a label "chagas" does not logically mean that those who (unbeknownst to them) fit the label have fundamental flaws l'gabei Chabad.

Learn Yud tes kislev sicha in chelek Lamed LS. Learn it again and again and again. Memorize it and share it with anybody you meet at any opportunity you can! When you fullfill the Horaa of the Rebbe to make Farbrengens in every place possible on 19 Kislev,
I would highly reccomend this Sicha as the theme. I once said it over in Borough park on 19 Kislev and the people were blown away. It brings out this point in such a clear and lucid way.
Many Chagasses have Chabadded because of it!
